I'm a moderator on Arqade/Gaming.StackExchange! Besides my moderator duties, I also occasionally contribute to the Arqade Blog and write tools against the SE API. I enjoy video games, and I like helping people enjoy games as well.

On top of all that, I co-author (with my partner in crime EBongo) a blog about gaming and technology called Without the Sarcasm.

We've blogged about:

comment Connection to own Q3 dedicated impossible
You can add +map q3dm17 to the command line to make it launch that map automatically, or you can add the map q3dm17 command to any of the config files you're exec'ing. I don't think the maprotation.cfg actually starts the maprotation right now. You'd need to run the m1 alias in order to kick it off. Nothing in the game engine is going to do it for you.

comment Connection to own Q3 dedicated impossible
Hmm, I may be off on the use of "vstr" in my previous comment, so that might not work. You might try (from the console) "map <mapname>" to get it to load a map, and see if the server responds to that with some additional messages. I don't see it picking a map and loading it according to your log file.

comment Connection to own Q3 dedicated impossible
A couple of things - your command line doesn't set dedicated to 1, maybe try that? Also, from what I recall of Q3 servers, they don't fully start up until a map loads. In the example configs, they run "vstr m1" at the end to kick off the maprotation. Your maprotation seems to be missing that. Perhaps one of those will help...

comment What is the moderator's reason for deleting my question?
You posted a question as an answer to another question. We're kind of particular about what kinds of posts go where. You can post new questions if you like, but the answer space is reserved for answers to the question.

comment What is the definition of “undetected” in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes?
I saw a "no detection" speedrun, and I seem to remember him getting the white-arc warning several times and radio comms between guards. I don't have the link on me, but a quick youtube search might turn up a quick run you can take a look at and draw conclusions from.

I don't have much experience with Ghosts yet, so I can't really answer. You might look at the answers over on this question, though - gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/37488/…

comment Where do you get the Double Lancers in Ratchet and Clank Size matters?
I don't know that there are Lancers in Size Matters. Are you maybe thinking of the Lacerator?

comment How to change the teleporters to only teleport to each other?
@Batophobia, I didn't update the X values when the Y values changed, which I think was the problem. I ran it about 10 times in a row now and it seems to work.

@Batophobia, odd. I'll look into it and see if I can fix the code.
